Academic honesty policy
We embrace a comprehensive academic honesty policy to ensure the highest standards of personal integrity. Schools and teachers recommend Atelier to their students because they know we uphold the highest standards of academic honesty. Our tutors may provide assistance, but they never do the work for a student, no matter how severe the pressure or time constraints.
For parents, this policy provides peace of mind knowing their child is getting the right kind of assistance that will truly help him learn. In the long term, it is a major disservice to a child when the tutor does the work for him.
